locked Re: Thunderbird talking way too much

 

Mary,

           This sounds very much like what was going on in version 70b3.  I just helped someone roll back from that to 68.6.0 and that was fine.  I am on the release channel and when I just checked I'm updating, and have been updated to 68.7.0.

            While it would be odd for any major change in a dot level release, it could be some small change has triggered this, as accessibility testing is spotty at best (as a general rule).

             I don't have time at the moment to fire up NVDA and listen, but if you can provide just a couple of the things being said that weren't before, I will do that later and see if I have them, too.

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.04.1 hotfix #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.04.1 hotfix is now available. This version resolves an issue reported by people using Word 365 where NVDA may announce odd things when you toggle font attributes (bold, font size, etc.), especially more so for non-English speakers. In addition, added support for Microsoft Solitaire Collection (NVDA (finally) can announce card decks).

 

As a reminder from 20.04 release, Windows 10 App Essentials will end support for Windows 10 Version 1903 (May 2020 Update) in July 2020 (a lot earlier for people using development snapshots).

 

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: determining the version of Chrome

If you open the menus, up arrow to help, its much closer, and press enter, you will be on about.  Press enter and about will open.
Tab once and then use the screen review keys numpad 7 and numpad 9 to move up and down in the screen.  Nine moves you down and if you repeatedly move, you will get to the version number.  You will also hear whther Chrome is up-to-date or if it is updating or if it has, you will see a restart message.
 
I don’t know the laptop layout screen review keys, the ones I gave are for the desktop layout.

I was going to try out chrome because of the discussions that have been going on here.  I am curious if it has truly improved so much. I decided to check to see what version I have but can't seem to find a way to figure this out.  How does one do this?  I can't find a way to see any about info for Chrome like I can on other programs and browsers.


Thanks.

Alt+F will also open the Chrome menu.  Then press "E" to open the Help sub-menu, then press "G" to open the "About Google Chrome" sub-menu, and the version number will be on the page that loads.


You can also use the following link to directly access the "About Google Chrome" page, which has the version number:  chrome://settings/help.

 I love Chrome it's the only thing I use. Very friendly with NVDA. I love how going into help checks for updates and starts the update. Be safe all!


Re: determining the version of Chrome

go into the google chrome settings then help then about.  That will show your current version and do the update.

locked Thunderbird talking way too much

Mary Otten
 

I should have said in my previous message that I have disabled the mozilla enhancements addon, and the result is the same. There is way too much talking, and I keep seeing things about how t-bird thinks a message is junk, and when I hit enter on the "no" button to say it isn't junk, I lose focus and have to close and reopen the app. It has turned what use to be a pleasant efficient experience into a frustrating waste of time.

locked Thunderbird talking way too much

Mary Otten
 

Hi all,


I just updated Thunderbird, and all of a sudden, it is talking way too much. For instance, each time I delete a message, I hear about how that message was deleted and added to trash, or some such. There are other announcements as well, rendering the experience entirely too verbose and inefficient for getting through email. I'm using the latest nvda, and as far as I know, there haven't been changes to the mozilla apps enhancements add on which I have been using without incident until now. My t-bird version is 68.7.0; it just updated to that.

Likeing content on facebook as a page.

Martin O'Sullivan
 

Hi

I manage a page on Facebook.  and sometimes when I see content which is relevant to that page,  I need to "like" the content as the page, and not as me.

Facebook gives you an option to do this with a little Submenu, which drops down.  
I can get to the menu, get it to drop down, but that is it.

NVDA does not find the menu options.  I have tried for two days now just to get NVDA to access this menu.  but I just can’t.

Does anyone know how to get NVDA to access the menu?

I have tried tabbing, Browse  and Focus mode, using the elements list.  Surely  there is a way of accessing this menu.

I have got a work around at the moment; however, this is not grate.  
Currently, the only way I can access the menu, is If I already know what it says.

So, here Is what I do However I am open to better suggestions.

1 I find the little submenu button, on the post which I want to like.
2 I press enter on that.
3 I press  NVDA key + CTRL + F
4 I then search for the word “PERSONAL” because I worked out that that word would always appear when the menu dropped down I found this by examining the page code.
Once NVDA has been positioned on the word “PERSONAL” then I can navigate the menu.
5 I then select the page, which I want to like the content as.
6 I press enter and proceed to like the content in the normal way.

Please say that there is a better way of doing this.

The doc.new approach does not require you to be in Google Docs before invoking it.  I"m glad it works in Firefox as well.
